Sunapee, N.H. — Singer/songwriters Annalise Emerick and Abbie Morin will share the stage at the Sunapee Community Coffeehouse on Friday, April 12, from 7 to 9 p.m. The Coffeehouse meets at the Sunapee Methodist Church on Lower Main Street. There is no cover charge. The emcee will pass the hat for the musicians.
After leaving the streets of Nashville for Boston, Annalise Emerick hasn’t looked back, says the event release. It describes her songs as “familiar melodies, many borrowing from the folk legacy of American antiquity, [that] calm the soul like a childhood friend. Yet Annalise’s voice uniquely twists intricate melodies in fresh and exciting new ways.”
Abbie Morin is from Laconia, N.H. and has been a street performer in Provincetown, Massachusetts, and has played in venues around New Hampshire and Vermont.
“Abbie’s tunes range from quirky, to heartfelt and are all influenced by her university studies in poetry,” according to the Coffeehouse website. “She has been performing her indie and folk inspired originals in front of crowds for over eight years.”
Al Peterson, Sunapee, is the scheduled emcee for the evening. Cathy Morse is the sponsor.
Open mic night
April’s open mic night at the Coffeehouse, which will close out the month’s schedule, will be on Friday, April 19 from 7 to 9 p.m.
“We love our open mics and the people it supports,” says Tom Daniels, a Coffeehouse volunteer.
Performers can get 15 minutes or three songs and it is open to all levels: first timers to professionals. Sign up is at 6:45 p.m., before the start of the show.
“Although it’s allowed, we don’t encourage singing with a prerecorded song on a machine, but do encourage you to find someone to accompany you. Live music is what we’re about. If you need some help or ideas let us know,” adds Daniels.
EJ Tretter will emcee open mic and the New Hampshire Storytelling Alliance is the sponsor.
